I invest in my students so that they can invest in themselves. To advance the latter, I encourage a growth mindset and challenge students to bring out their best performance. Also, as a firm believer that education is a key component of human maturity, I am passionate about helping my students see what is at stake in the humanities and social science topics I specialize in.

My academic background is in philosophy and political science: I received a BA in government from the University of Virginia in 2010, and an MA and an MPhil in philosophy from Columbia University in 2012 and 2014, respectively. Having served as a teaching assistant for or taught numerous courses in these fields, I am especially interested in tutoring in them. (My specializations include 19th- and 20th-century European philosophy and American constitutional law and theory.)

Nonetheless, I am excited about working with students in a range of subjects, including: AP and college-level European, US, and world (general) history; reading and writing standardized test prep; academic and essay writing; and AP English and introductory college composition and literature.

My nose is usually in a book or, sub-optimally, looking at a screen. When this isn't the case, though, I enjoy cycling, exploring Brooklyn and New York City, and relaxing with my two cats, Snowball and Teddy.
